Arizona Fly Fishing

Orvis

Whether you prefer lakes, streams, creeks or urban fishing, a year long season and a wide variety of sport fish species provide Arizonian’s with plenty of great fishing opportunities…Although Arizona is a desert state, it is blessed with abundant opportunities for anglers. Of the 27 or so species commonly sought by Arizona anglers, eight are cool or coldwater fish, and 19 are warmwater species. There are more than 160 stream management reaches comprising 1,500 miles and around 80 lakes that are managed for trout. The Arizona Game and Fish Department also manages warmwater fishing opportunities in about 355,000 acres of impounded water (lakes, reservoirs, ponds, and tanks) and 35,840 acres of flowing water (about 1,400 linear miles). – Arizona Game and Fish Department
